Watson, leading the Australian side in the absence of the sidelined Michael Clarke who had back trouble, picked up two for nine in his five overs in his comeback match from a hamstring injury.

 

“It was a very nice start as captain,” said Watson. “It helped that wickets fell at appropriate times. I kept trying to get the bowlers and their ends right. I felt good and had a lot of fun.”

 

India face an uphill task in their bid to reach the Tri-Nation Series final after an 87-run loss to Australia at the Sydney Cricket Ground.

 

India showed little fight in their chase after Australia made 252 for nine, being skittled out for 165 off 39.3 overs.

 

The loss was India’s fourth in seven One-Day Internationals (ODI) of the tournament and means that they must beat Sri Lanka by a bonus point in Hobart on Tuesday to have any chance of making it to the final.

 

On the other hand, Australia are already through with their crushing bonus-point victory and have one more match to play against Sri Lanka. (AFP)
